Settle In Settle Down

A nice creek valley, clear easy camp sites with decent spacing, a short walk to a waterfall swim hole, huckleberry and mushroom picking and fantastic sightseeing in Gifford Pinchot top the list here. It's four stars if you get a campsite creekside (which is also further away from the road), three stars for anything else. If Sunset is full, Rock Creek Horse Camp and Cold Creek can each accommodate tent campers - Battle Ground Lake too.

Spectacular experience

One of my favorite campgrounds. Very well kept and kid friendly campsitewith easy to moderate hikes availabland site. Love the close proximity to the river as well! My only complaint is the near comingling of campsites with RV sites, in my opinion more space between the two is necessary for those of us who want to hear the hum of nature, not RVs, at night.
